'Double Z' Zach Zinsky’s family moves to Granite and Zach dreams of a fresh start, of being, for once, at the front of the line. His hopes are squashed like a bug when he meets Ms. Paradise, his new and perfect teacher. Oh, yeah, perfect . . . and awful. When Zach decides to rattle Paradise, it’s really just a silly prank to get her to calm down and maybe lighten up a bit. After he unwittingly unleashes hundreds of ravenous praying mantid nymphs into his classroom, three things happen: Emily throws up on the reading rug, the principal faints dead away, and Ms. Paradise shows a side of her that’s too shocking to believe. Who--or what-- is Ms. Paradise really? Next ensues a series of events that are energetic, exhilarating, and horrible. Will 'Double Z' Zach be able to save himself along with all those baby mantids? Will he find a happy compromise that is less than perfect, but better than last? Get set for a nail-biting adventure of praying mantid mayhem!
